For over 10 years Super Tuscan from Ruffino Modus, has scored 90+ points. A blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot from the vineyards of the Poggio Casciano Estate and from other selected vineyards of the Ruffino estates in Tuscany. Only the best grapes, selected during harvest, are used in the production of Modus. Fermentation took place over a period of about 4 weeks including an extended post-fermentation skin maceration. The wine was then aged in Troncais and Allier French oak barrels for 12 months. This 2012 just received a score of 94 points from James Suckling who said "A silky and refined red with currant, berry, mineral and dried flower aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, flavorful and delicious. A blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drinkable now but better in 2017."
